Soar With Reading came to Orlando recently, where the Orlando County Public Library was jam-packed with eager readers—and one NBA player. More than 900 children and 400 adults flocked to see Glen “Big Baby” Davis from the Orlando Magic readThe Gigantic Turnip. The player also joined Mr. Steve from PBS Kids on stage to sing and dance to the Soar With Reading song and “Recess Rocks”. Characters Hooper and Super Why made an appearance and took several photos with the children.
The event even made Good Morning America’s photo of the day slideshow!
